"First House"
Othniel Taylor had owned a large tract of land in the southeast section, bought in 1742. He with his sons had crossed the river and finding excellent water power at the Mill Yard, had with the help of Asaph White, built and operated three different saw mills. The first was completed in 1769. His oldest son, Samuel, reaching manhood, was soon to marry Esther White, a sister of Asaph. Othniel Taylor therefore, decided to give a farm to the younger man, and chose the section which later became known as Buckland center. Then at the Mill Yard the lumber was prepared for probably the first house in town which was built about 1770. This still stands [1937], a fine specimen of the earlier homes, on the road leading west from Buckland center, the second house beyond the cemetery. To this commodious house, Samuel Taylor brought his bride...

TAYLOR, Samuel, b. Sept. 21, 1744 at Deerfield; s. of Othniel (1719-1788) and Martha Arms who m. June 27, 1743; d. Sept. 5 1837. Was a Revolutionary soldier, captain of a company which marched from Deerfield. He early took an active part in the affairs of the town of Charlemont which, until 1779, included a part of Buckland. At the latter place he had a farm given him by his father probably about the time of his marriage, on which he built a large house. He was largely instrumental in securing the incorporation of the town of Buckland, was the first town clerk, holding that office for forty years. Was representative to the General Court from Charlemont. As a civil engineer he surveyed and laid out the major part of Buckland and lands in that vicinity. He gave the land for the cemetery at the Center [Old Cemetery #01], and for a nominal sum, the Common and the land upon which the school house stands [Upper St, Buckland Center]. He took a prominent part in the military affairs of the times and letters written by him while in the Revolutionary army may be found in another part of this work, as well as a more detailed account of his life. He was m. at Leominster, Dec 2, 1769, to Esther, dau. of Col. Jonathan and Esther (Wilder) White of Leominster and Heath. She was b. Apr. 9, 1750; d. Apr. 18 or 21, 1830. Twelve children listed as above.
